When the credit cards get out of control, it can take a while to get back on track. The Debt Boss debt tracker will give you a visual of where you’ve been and, hopefully, a positive outlook on where you’re going!
We have taken time to Jump Off The Credit Card Merry-Go-Round and are ready to be the BOSS and tackle overwhelming debt.
Having a visual of where you’re at is an excellent motivator to stay on track. Little bits of scratch paper with amounts owed and interest paid will work, sitting front and center on your desk, but the Debt Boss will keep you organized at a glance.
Debt Boss Debt Tracker
The Debt Boss provides 14 rows to record each debt. This isn’t just for credit cards, list your mortgage, car payments, and any other debt that has an end point.
It’s always good to know if you’re close to your credit limit and to keep tabs on your credit to debt ratio.
Did you know if your balance is over 30% of your credit limit, it can affect your credit score? (If your Visa has a credit limit of $10,000 and you have $4,000 charged to it, it may affect your credit score.)
The interest percentage on each debt is handy to have when paying down debt. Whether you use the Snowball Method or the Debt Avalanche, keep an eye on your interest rate.
Snowball Method – The Snowball Method tackles the smallest debt first and pays it off while paying the minimum on all other debt. It then rolls that money over to the next smallest debt building momentum.
The Debt Avalanche – The Debt Avalanche tackles the debt with the highest interest rate first while paying the minimum on all other debt. After the highest interest rate debt is paid off, the Debt Avalanche then puts that money toward the next highest interest rate debt until each debt is paid.
Monthly balances are important to keep track of from month to month to ensure those balances aren’t creeping up. At first they may not move much but, eventually, you should see them taking a downhill slide.
Monthly Interest Paid
There’s nothing that motivates you more than seeing how much interest you’re paying every month on your debt. Write it down!
The Debt Boss eliminates all those pieces of scratch paper and shows you your debt at a glance. There’s no need to prolong the process!
There IS good reason to keep the Debt Boss at your fingertips to encourage you in your debt pay off journey.
Be a Debt BOSS!
